PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE OPEN TO ALL ETHNICITIES IN ALL ROLES. WE ARE ALSO OPEN TO BOTH EQUITY AND NON-EQUITY ACTORS IN ALL ROLES.
CARRIE WHITE (Female, to play 17) – A painfully shy outsider with a strong desire to belong. Victim of frequent pranks and bullying at school as well as abuse under her mother’s strict religious control at home. She transforms from ugly duckling into graceful – and then vengeful – swan. Vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as well as fierce power. Requires a special actress with mesmerizing presence and extreme stamina as an actor and singer. May require partial nudity.
MARGARET WHITE (Female, 35-50) – A commanding, intense woman of visceral extremes, possessing zealous religious convictions, and almost abusive maternal love for her daughter. Like Carrie, with whom she shares several duets, her voice must range from expressive and melodic to ferocious and frightening. Requires an actress with mesmerizing presence and extreme stamina as an actor and singer.
SUE SNELL (Female, 20s to play 17-18) – A popular over achieving student. Her unthinking participation in a cruel act of bullying causes a crisis of conscience that leads her on a complicated emotional and psychological journey to make amends. Smart with just a touch of shrewd edge. The play is told through her memory. Vocally, she has a pop ballad voice that delivers sincerity and strength.
TOMMY ROSS (Male, 20s to play 17-18) – Handsome, popular star athlete, and all around standout. Yet he also has unexpected, quirky sensitivity and is just starting to mine his personal life and feelings – a budding poet. Effortless pop tenor.
CHRIS HARGENSEN (Female, 20s to play 17-18) – Rich, spoiled, and dangerous. She is a knockout beauty loaded with sexual dynamite, and serious daddy and anger management issues. Her voice is pop/rock percussive: rangy and powerful. Must be an equally strong dancer. May require partial nudity.
BILLY NOLAN (Male, 20s) – A dangerous, sexy, trashy, stupid-like-a-fox bad boy beholden to Chris’s bidding. His voice is that of a wailing rocker. Strong dancer.
MISS GARDNER (Female, mid-30’s) – The girls’ no nonsense P.E. teacher. A tough disciplinarian, Carrie also arouses within her a surprising instinct to protect. Warm and powerful pop belt.
MR. STEPHENS / REV. BLISS (Male, late 40’s) – A still sexy English teacher and guidance counselor not quite connected to the world of his students. Doubles as Reverend Bliss, the voice of a radio evangelist. Strong, clear rock tenor/baritone.
NORMA (Female, 20s to play 17-18) – A Bitchy gossip with an artistic hipster edge. Norma is second-in-command to Chris’ queen bee. A strong singer/dancer. May require partial nudity.
FRIEDA (Female, 20’s to play 17-18) – Sue’s sometime friend. A drama dork, she’s an easygoing, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer. A strong singer/actor who moves well.
HELEN (Female, 20’s to play 17-18) – A leggy cheerleader. Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd mentality. A strong singer/dancer. May require partial nudity.
GEORGE (Male, 20’s to play 17-18) – A jock. Preppy. Somewhat unsure. Tommy’s wingman since childhood. Strong actor/singer who moves well.
STOKES (Male, 20’s to play 17-18) – A jock, the cocky but shorter or smaller guy on the football team; he’s happy to be sometimes included as one of Tommy’s posse. Strong actor/singer who moves well.
FREDDY (Male, 20’s to play 17-18) – The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would ever give him the time of day. Strong actor/singer who moves well.
MRS. LUBLIN (Female, late 30’s-early 40s) – The science teacher. A space cadet. Non
speaking. Will cover Margaret/Miss Gardner. Very strong singer and actor who moves well.
MALE ENSEMBLE (Male, 20’s to play 17-18) – Four additional students who flesh out the various cliques at Ewen High School. They are cheerleaders, jocks, drama dorks, brains, and rebels. Most of all they are real people. A mix of strong singers, actors and dancers. Will also understudy principal roles.
FEMALE ENSEMBLE (Female, 20’s to play 17-18) – Two additional students who flesh out the various cliques at Ewen High School. They are cheerleaders, jocks, drama dorks, brains, and rebels. Most of all they are real people. A mix of strong singers, actors and dancers. Will also understudy principal roles.
